Blind Willie McTell (Bob Dylan)

Dm A7 Dm Seen the arrow on the doorpost Dm A7 Dm Saying, "This land is condemned Dm A7 C G All the way from New Orleans Bb C Dm To Jerusalem." Dm A7 Dm I traveled through East Texas Dm A7 Dm Where many martyrs fell Dm A7 C G And I know no one can sing the blues Bb C Dm Like Blind Willie McTell Well, I heard the hoot owl singing As they were taking down the tents The stars above the barren trees Were his only audience Them charcoal gypsy maidens Can strut their feathers well But nobody can sing the blues Like Blind Willie McTell See them big plantations burning Hear the cracking of the whips Smell that sweet magnolia blooming (And) see the ghosts of slavery ships I can hear them tribes a-moaning (I can) hear the undertaker's bell And I know no one can sing the blues Like Blind Willie McTell There's a woman by the river With some fine young handsome man He's dressed up like a squire Bootlegged whiskey in his hand There's a chain gang on the highway I can hear them rebels yell i want to tell you one thing nobody can sing the blues Like Blind Willie McTell Well, God is in heaven And we all want what's his But power and greed and corruptible seed Seem to be all that there is I'm gazing out the window Of the St. James Hotel i want to tell you one thing nobody can sing the blues Like Blind Willie McTell
